Bill; Devery, of New Tork, has been
turned ' down by the Democratic State
Convention of New York. Devery had been
Chief of the New Tork police force and
was undoubtedly a machine politician.
Ha had learned from both Democrat and
Republican, aa well aa from the -Reform'
candidates, and "good govern
ment" campaigns, that there was in Kew
Tork City but one measure of politics,
one rule governing all parties, one object
In view, and that was to win. None of
: them cared as to tbe means employed, so
the object Was attained.
Devery, In the recent primaries In New
Tork City, set out to carry the Ninth
Warpanae .carried it.7. .1
"file came out in the open and made a
"D toJwln,,,u,d h wo"- He spent nearly
40,Oo6, but he spent his own money. He
bought beer and steamboats and took the
women and children of the district on a
picnic excursion. He made himself popu
lar in; every way possible, and for this.
v and because of his methods he was turned
down and the Ninth Ward was not rep-
: resented In tbe Convention.
, It may be that it was proper to rebuke
, bis methods, but any Convention. Demo-
.; cratio or other, in New Tork or Oregon,
' that does so, la about as consistent as 8a-
? tan in rebuking gin. .
Tbere is not an election In the United
States at which money- is not spent for
beer, t and excursions, brass bands, and
campaign speeches are familiar to all.
c..The method of -electioneering "may be
. wrong and Jt Is but so long as it is
the method, and the only one, and com
mon to both parties, we see no reason
Why Devery should be turned down by
a Convention every Individual member of
which had, done exactly what he had,
only on a smaller scale.
. The bicycle trust going Into the hands
of receiver, is suggestive of the fate
Of other trust combinations of a certain
. class. The bicycle business had reached
its cjlmax before the trust was formed,
and unholy prices charged during the
first few years of the craze, had given way
to tolerably reasonable prices before the
combination was formed. To prevent
overproduction and maintain prices was
the ostensible reason for forming the
trust, and, of course, each company go
ing into it tried to get as large a block
of the stock as possible.
" there was another reason for the com
bin and that was to permit tlie stock
holders of the individual companies to

Absolute necessity, like coal, oil, meat,
or something of that kind, the people
would have been compelled to pay big
v dividends on the diluted stocks.
- This is what is happening with coal,
and oil, andmeat The people, rich or
poor, must have them, and they must pay
such price as the trust management fix.
. They were formed much as the bicycle
combination was, with five dollar's worth
... of stock for every dollar's worth of values
'put into them, and the consumers must
pay such dividends as the magnates de
. mand upon five times . the real capital
i Invested.
Now, herein lies the dinger of a flnan-
rial panic that would make that of seven

Therm has been an era of wild specula
tion, eapeoiaUy in stocks. The civilised
countries of the world axe nearly all
on a gold basis. Tet the trusts In the
United States are capitalised for about
double the value of the world's visible
gold supply,
Let this 17.000.008,000 "be suddenly re

-Jpwell as private fortunes, would be swept

A financial panio .soon squeetes the
water out of every business proposition.
The supposed wealth of thousands con
sists entirely of fictitious values, of
watered stock, and when the squeeze

blow away like thistle ifcwn.
This will be the result unless we fall
back on Socialism or Anarchy. The lat
ter is too appalling to even be considered.
tt seems then it must be cither Socialism
or panic.
The trust magnates have brought about
this condition, and as they do not like
either of the obpva remedies, they will
in time perhaps regret the Inordinate
greed that led to their undoing.
With Its proverbial .consistency, th-
Oregonlan has taken Its expected "flop"
on the granting of franchises. But a few
days since it was firm and fixed In ih
determination that no franchises shoulil
be granted until after the new charter
was in effect. It held to this position f -
nearly two whole days, but on Tuesd.iy
could resist no longer, and now Is (irm
ly convinced that If all -the franchise
asked tor . are not granted, rorf-had, de
velopment will surely stop, tt still be
lieves that the ; provisions required by
the Jiaw charter to be incofporated 'tit
all grants should be respected and
corporated Into the new franchises askn 1
for, but loses sight of the fact that som-
of the most valuable of thosr provision--.
cannot be legally Inserted therein.
As a further reason for granting them
immediately, it says: "There Is no reason
to wait for a charter which may or may
not become a law." '
What does '-the Delphic oracle mean by
this? Is there then really something .lo-
Ing about the charter that is being con
cealed from the people? The EUitor-ln-
Chief of the Oregonlan was a membpr
of the charter board and supported the.'p
provisions both 4a private add ImbUc. an.!
stood on this question Just, whi-re The
lt us be candid on- this sub.lert. Th
Oregonian knows these applications were
made at. this time to avoid tnn very pro
visions it considers so Important. The
Oregonian knows the new chartor will ;e
enacted Into law the first week of lh"
coming session 'of the Legislature. unl ss
It IS prepared to believe and assprt thru
the members-elect from this count
would violate their solemn pledges nntl
prove traitors to their1 constituents. Tho
Oregonian knows, that for the next thre -or
four months there will be no railroad
construction except where absolutely
necessary. The Oregonian knows that if
the entire $400,000 which is proposed to
be expended was used in replacing oM
tracks and repairing streets anJ briilR'
now being used by the railway com
pany, there would be a mighty lit lie bill
ance left. Knowing all these fuels an'
that within ninety days or thereabout
the new charter will bf In effect, when
the provisions Jt approves will have to !v
made a part of every grant, it support,
the immediate grant of a number rf
miles of streets for railway purposes.
Iwhy? -
.Three days ago it thought it wise to
wait. Now It Is all Important to move
at once.
The Journal stands where it started,
for the Interests of the city. It can so,
no reason for haste. Ninety days c:ui
make no difference to the railway com
pany; it can make every difference to liie
city. Let the Council stand Arm and the
people of this city,, w'll support them.

Probably an appeal to Congress for an

But the proper emphasis ofpthe historical
features and the showing of products from
the Far East would constitute powerful
arguments for the desired appropriation.

The Portland people are to ask for
tf00,000 for the 1905 Exposition from the
state. That Is not too much. The Expo
sition, conducted on liberal lines, will be
worth several times that sum to Oregon.
The Portland Fair managers have de
cided that they want $500,000 from the
taxpayers to hold their fair.
This is Governor Gear's opportunity to
aay to them, tenyemen, put off your op
position to tbe flat salary reform.

salary and all the fees end perquisites go

Portland political grafters are playing
a bold game ridiculing the Governor's
pretensions as a candidate for Senator,
and at the same time opposing flat sal
aries, and yet asking $500,000 of the peo
ple for their fair.
The state tax Is now twelve mills, and
the proposition to take $500,000 for a Port
land exposition is nothing but to add an
additional mill or two for the benefit of,

the flat salary bill and taxation of un
taxed franchises. He holds the trump
card to protect the people.
The vote for Governor Geer for Senator
was an Important matter. But the adop
tion of the Initiative and referendum
amendment was far rnOfe important, and
a special session Is needed for that alone,
to put that Direct Legislation amend
ment Into effect, as a restraint upon the
extravagances of the Legislature.
If a special session would put the di
rect legislation amendment Into opera
tion so that it would apply to the work
of the regular session, that very fact
would make-a.ll work of that Legislature
more conservative, and would save the
ueople aauarter of a million. ,

It the Portland managers wanted to
act fair and square with the people they
would not oppose a special session to
pass the flat salary bill, put all fees' and
perquisites in the treasury, and put the
initiative and referendum Into effect, and
pass or provide for a revenue bill t'hpt

corporations and franchises not now
Governor Geer holds the whip now to
secure some of these great reforms, if ho
will use his power and veto their $30,000
appropriation. If they refuse to give the
people the promised reforms and the pro
tection to which they are entitled.
All Portland wants the $300,000 for the
Lewis and Clark Fair. All the people
want the promised reforms,.' To glva the
grafters all they demand, and, give the
people wind-soup Is a suicidal policy tor
any man to pursue. The Journal does
not believe that Governor Geer Is that
kind of a man. The politicians havo
shown him that they have as little use
for him as the people have for them.
Nothing but a Arm stand tor, the pause
of .the people will give Governor Geer
any standing in hts aspirations for Unit
ed States Senator.
Now that tho question of a state ap
propriation for the Lewis and Clark
Centennial is assuming a definite form,
the people of the state are called upon to
seriously, consider the matter, and it Is
CP to them to furnish the appropriation,
The Lewis and Clark Centennial is the
first effort of Its kind for the Northwest
Coast, and particularly . lorv Oregon. It
is an enterprise in which the people of
the entire state should be interested, for
to the people at large will come tbe ultl.
mate benefit. To be sure the immediate
harvest will be reaped by ' the city r
Portland and the transportation com

foresight to determine srho will be tht
ultimate gainers from the Fair. Every
eecuon of the stats, which in the aggro
gate has unparalleled resources, will bs
represented and advertised by the Cen
tennlaL The thousands of people who
visit Portland during the Fair will serve
as an advertising; medium for the entire
state, and will be the heralds of such an
influx of immigration as the Pacific
Northwest has never before experienced.
The ultimate benefit will thus be for the
entire state In the more thickly settled
ot the agricultural districts, building up
business Interests, stimulating the lum
bering industry, and opening the eye of
Easterners to the great opportunities tor

Another Important feature of the Ex-,
position will he the advertising of tbe
Orient," the trade with whioh is , fast
becoming a very important feature of
Western commerce. It Is essential that
the opportunities there be Impressed up
on the people ot the Eastern states and
the Centennial affords the opportunity
tor doing so. Then will tbe necessity of
an ppen. harbor at the mouth of the Columbia-be
realised, and a great era ot
commercial and Industrial growth be en
tered upon, which will be of infinite jam
to the people ot the entire state.
Then let us lend our every support to
the success ot this, Oregon's greatest
Exposition. It is up to the people to as

The genial Harvey does not seem to

And what Is the row about, after all?
Is It because Mr. Geer persistently -a'.-".ei
and favored the would-be Senator when
he much needed aid and favors, that he
feels it incumbent to treat tbe Governor
as he has treated all others who have
done him great favors in the past? Mr.
Geer went fairly on the ticket as thu
law provided. The great prophet pre
dicted that he wouldnotget as,jmanj
votes as TSTrTFurnlsh. He did get many
thousands more, and they were all Ro
publican votep, too. The Democratic
nominee received his full party vote
throughout'the entire state, and the vote
of Mr. Scott and 1799 other good Repub
licans in Multnomah County in addition.
Of course the astute regulator of Repub
licanism., now says that the Mays bill
was not passed for the purpose for
which Mr. Geer used it. It was meant
for an entirely different proposition.
That proposition did not materialise, so
the bill was only a little legislative In

"The Penitent. '
It Is difficult to speak, in the ordinary
language of criticism. In writing of such
plays as W. E. Nankevllle's production
of Mall Caine's powerful story, "The
Penitent" When a drama at the very
outset storms the fortress of the heart
and leaves the weak bulwarks and de
fences of tbe Intellect to fall under the
sur enesftdef tness AhA s oncentes-tlfln, .ofe
tbe attack without as much aa 'by your
leave.' the critic's occupation become
at once easy and difficult Easy to. speak
of praise and difficult to give those
words a Judicial sound such as beoomes
a conservative estimate. "The penitent"
Is a story ot the passions, nothing more,'
But such a . story, ., intermingled with)
duty, love, with hatred, with revenge,,
with patience towards a misguided)
youth, and sacrifice to accomplish happU
ness, these and nothing more are its.
Buffice it that its presentation is an
nounced for one night only next Batur
day, October U, at the Marquam Grand,
and that the eame great cast and the
same scenic equipment that aided ii
making Its success in Boston so trium
phant, WIU be seen here. No new play
of this season's staging comes more
highly recommended.

inee Sunday afternoon. Is beyond ques
tion the most talked of, popular and
succesful drama of the day. In making
the dramatization of the play from the
famous novel, Mr. Cains exercised the
liberty of the dramatist only to the ex

some features the play differs from the
book, such difference only tends to
strengthen the situations and the effect,
and .does not detract from the value of
the story. One. of the most affecting
scenes is where Mr. Charles Wyngate, aa
John Storm, "enters the apartment of
Miss Counttss, at night with the purpose
of making her pray and saving her soul
through death. But the love ot Glory
triumphs. The play ends with a mutual
understanding hetwen them, they de
ciding to brave life's battles together.
"The Christian" is without doubt the.
most powerful, absorbing and intensely
dramatic play ever written; an unex
ampled moral lesson, and the most elo
